Jen's Food Diary - working my way through the Mag's recipes!

This time round i've decided to keep a food diary, to help me remember what i've done right on weeks with good losses, and see where i've gone wrong on the not so good weeks.

Yesterday: RED

Breakfast: Banana (Very bad, I know, just ran out of time and won't let it happen again!)
Snack: Fridge Raiders Chicken Bites (3 Syns)
Lunch: Wholemeal pitta (HEB) with Ham, lettuce & RF cottage cheese. Muller light & Grapes.
Snack: Apple & Glass of Milk (HEA)
Dinner:Baked Pork Steaks with Apple & creme fraiche sauce (onions, mushrooms, Apple, Pork steaks, stock & Reduced Fat Creme Fraiche - 2 syns per serving), Vegetable mash (Celariac, Swede & Carrots) & red & white cabbage
Snack: Muller light (cherry & choc)(2.5 syns)

Total: 7.5 syns

Even if I do say so myself, that dinner was delicious and well worth the 2 syns!!

Few too many syns today, as dinner plans changed after lunch. Will make sure I re-coup the last couple of days syns over the rest of the week.
like your diary hun, seems like your doing well, like the way you changed your plans to suit the days, think i need to do this more.

one question, whats a *star* week mean?

Star week is when you have your period. It's known as a star week in class by SW so that you can discuss it without the men blushing. Well something like that anyway!

Think i'll make some soup tomorrow to take to work for lunch during the week.
aaah i see.. well, i am not sure whats happening with my star lol seems to be threatening to come along at the moment, which makes me worry that i will have not lost any come WI due to being bloated etc! Grrrr!!

and soz, another Q, your making soup, whats ur recipe? x
I don't use a recipe as such. I just use whatever is in the fridge! Generally there will be an onion that much I know, other than than probably carrots, leeks, squash, swede and then just stock and blend it when it's cooked.

I make soup all the time, it's just a case of slinging it in the pan with some stock - nothing to it!
